Here is my review of this amazing novel: First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to C.J. Darlington and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Bound By Guilt" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me. Roxi Gold is no stranger to disappointment. In and out of several foster homes after losing her mother as a child, she finally found a manner of “home” with her mother’s cousin. Now she is one of a pair of juvenile delinquents traveling the country in an RV. Anyone else would be living it up. Instead, sixteen-year-old Roxi and her cousin Diego are stealing rare books with the help of Diego’s mom. Abby Dawson’s brother’s murder during the robbery of his rare book store draws these two aching hearts together in desperation. “Bound by Guilt” by C.J. Darlington is loaded with strong characters, imaginative writing and a solid plot! This story combines several elements that I adore: suspense, books and the central message of the gift of forgiveness that has the power to change a life. This is a masterful sophomore novel that leaves the reader satisfied, entertained and knowing God’s grace on a deeper level.
